Verismic Power Management Program Update

The Verismic Power Management Program continues in Phase I of Implementation. The project has been going well and we will continue to keep you updated as the project progresses. 

The TAC Automation and Continuity Team has been gradually deploying the power management profile to the first floor of FLITE and on January 19, the profile will be deployed to the Timme Center for Student Services (CSS). Buildings that have already received the power management profile include the Physical Plant and Granger.

This power management profile will affect office, classroom, and lab computers. Once a computer receives the power management profile, it will enter sleep mode after two hours of inactivity. To learn how to wake up your computer from sleep mode, click here

Some specialized use computers may need to be excluded from this program, for example, those that are critical to building controls, digital signage, or printing for a computer lab – that’s okay. To request an exception, call 231-591-4822 or write an email to TAC@ferris.edu with the subject of “Computer Power Management exception request”. Please provide your name, building code, room number, phone number, computer name, and barcode number of the computer(s), as well as a description of why the computer needs to be excluded. Leadership will review each request on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact TAC at 231-591-4822 or toll free at 877-779-4822, or by email at TAC@ferris.edu
